Gorgeous rooms with exceptional detail. Stayed here with our two boys (ages 16 & 17). Fabulous location in the old part of the city. Perfect location to navigate Geneva by foot, public transit and taxi.

Except for an initial bait and switch regarding rates the stay at Les Armures was wonderful. I was heading to Geneva on a last minute business trip and asked my travel agent for quotes form this hotel since I had heard good things about it on my last trip. She came back to me at 1046 in the morning with... More

Les Armures has successfully preserved the 17th century features of this residence whilst bringing it into the 21st Century with a modern and elegant decor. The rooms are tastefully decorated and are very comfortable, with delightful bedding and beautiful bathrooms. This is a luxury boutique hotel right in the centre of Geneva's charming old town, next to the Cathedral. The... More

Yes this was an expensive hotel in a very expensive city but worth every penny for the quality it provided. The suite we stayed in was exceptionally well appointed and the cleanest I have experienced. The décor was pure class and the personal touches were stylish.

We booked 2 rooms for our family of 4. The hotel was just beautiful. They recommended their restaurant for the cheese fondue and it was delicious. We will stay at this hotel again. Loved the location, the service, and the rooms.

We were in Geneva for our granddaughter's graduation. While we usually stay with family, we wanted to experience staying in Old Town where we could easily walk to Geneva's many lovely spots and shopping. We were not disappointed!

Okay, let's get this out of the way first up: Switzerland is very expensive; Geneva is very expensive; ergo, the Hotel Les Armures is very expensive. If that implacable logic bothers you too much, then consider your options - say, roughing it with a blanket on the porch of the adjacent Protestant cathedral. But if you choose to stay at... More

We read reviews before our visit, and we weren't disappointed. On looking at various other hotels across a range of budgets, we were not disappointed. The old town of Geneva has plenty of character and we felt was far better than the other side of the river. Reception was welcoming and staff are professional and helpful in all ways. Our... More

A nice and cosy restaurant in the heart of Geneva. We ordered the Fondue Chinoise which is a carpaccio of beef with different assortments such as fries, salad, mashed potatoes and sauces. You can order as much meat as you want (aka a GoGo). The waiter would ask you if you want the salad as a starter or later with... More

Rooms are modern and very nicely decorated. The breakfast buffet is small but with nice products. Very convenient to discover Geneva. Situated in a charming old building. Access by car is through narrow streets, access by foot is via a lot of steps and a step street, but it's well worth it.
